Chance The Rapper, Sia, Usher & Common To Be Featured on 'Hamilton' Mixtape

  /  03.02.2016

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway hit Hamilton, has landed a handful of big-name artists for its supportive mixtape. The hip-hop musical on the untimely fall of the first US Treasury Secretary, Alexander Hamilton, produced one of the most talked about Grammys performances, earned Miranda a MacArthur Genius Grant, and will most likely go on to take home a Tony.

The album of covers, remixes and “inspired bys,” has a dream team roster including Chance The Rapper, Usher, Queen Latifah, Sia, Common, Busta Rhymes, Ben Folds, Regina Spektor, among others. The Roots’ Questlove and Black Thought produced the cast recording, but no word yet on whether they’ll be involved with this project.

The Hamilton soundtrack is currently at no. 17 on the Billboard 200, with Atlantic Records looking to release the mixtape this fall.
